I joined StreetDoctors in February 2018 and have previously worked for a number of charities in international development, health and youth policy. I have fulfilled a variety of roles in fundraising, policy and data. Having studied Social Policy at university and before then, I had always been interested in social issues, especially those which affect young people and children. I am excited to be working with such a fantastic charity which is taking the public health approach to help tackle youth violence. The best part of my role is getting to work alongside the dedicated teams of volunteers and helping them to raise both awareness and funds for StreetDoctors. If you would like to take on a fundraising challenge or raise money for StreetDoctors then please do get in touch and I will be more than happy to support you!

Clare Reeder

I have been a member of the StreetDoctors team since 2012 and seen it grow. My roles started as a volunteer, then to Liverpool team leader, to then being the national lead for research and evaluation- I have enjoyed every moment. Now as MD I hope to see us grow from strength to strength.
I studied neuroscience, psychology and finally medicine and completed my first two years as a doctor in West London.
StreetDoctors’ passion, energy and clear goal of trying to reduce the impact of youth violence in a practical way is something that is so very special and a privilege to be a part of.

Madeleine Barnett

Hi, my name is Madeleine and I’ve been part of StreetDoctors for the past three years; this year I’m excited to be team leader for Manchester! Being part of a national charity, teaching young people at risk of youth violence, is a great experience. Helping them learn and gain confidence, to realise that they CAN make a difference and save lives, is what we aim to achieve in our sessions. Sometimes a young person may show little enthusiasm at the start of the teaching session but it’s great to see them become more involved and interested by the end of the session. My aims for the year ahead include highlighting the work that StreetDoctors does in Manchester, helping us to organise more teaching sessions in and around the city. This will enable us to reach more young people, in our mission to end youth violence. If you’re interested in the work we do in Manchester, please get in contact with us!

I have been with Cardiff StreetDoctors since it formed in 2016 and I have absolutely loved it. It is such a privilege to be part of a charity that actively reduces youth violence within the UK. I am so happy to be part of a great community of volunteers and young people. Wales has its own set of problems and I look forward to seeing how we tackle these complex issues as a team.

David Bell

I was attracted to StreetDoctors by a compelling approach to addressing violence among young people and its aftermath. The young medics, who volunteer, are passionate and committed to shifting the mindsets of vulnerable young people away from violence, while giving them the skills and confidence to save lives.

I have over 38 years’ experience with multi-national corporates and the public sector, particularly of change management in Finance and Services with organisation facing significant growth or financial pressures.

Rosie Gosling

I became part of StreetDoctors during my second year at Cardiff University. I’ve really enjoyed meeting and teaching the young people in our local community, outside the student bubble. As a new team, it’s encouraging to see how much we’ve already done, and I’m excited to see what this year will bring!
